camekân sokağı

number three.

on makeshift steps
i remain out of mind
just a meter of impression
exact cherry mounds they come
floating past
on a pushcart vendor’s song
in front of serial stools
the verifiable click-clacking
of dice
just as the button expelled
by a startling shirt
goes glancing off flagstones

two matching cubes dissolve in tea

(camekân sokağı = showcase lane)
